The actual discussion they were meaning to have is being had now. First Randi hears about Julie's progress, and she reveals that the first Magicant Piece is in the middle of the Silverfronds Forest somewhere. As Merla feeds her cats and provides relief for Norveg's jangled nerves, she comments that the group's got their work cut out for them.
The next topic of interest is Umbria/Zaedalkaah. Julie asks about that, and Randi reveals that he and Peganone nearly captured her, but were defeated by Angelo who took her instead. Julie's silly bard powers kick in and she realizes the 'great and powerful evil' she released is nothing more than a fairly high levelled Tiefling asssassin. How anticlimactic.
